Chinese New Year?

Hello Hounds,

I'm wondering if you know any Chinese restaurants doing specials for the Chinese New Year.

I'm particularly thinking about the rice cakes - nián-gāo. My friend's family eats it dipped in egg batter and pan-fried.

Thanks for the tip!

Perilla and Shiso Leaves

I've bought them directly from Japanese restaurants in town. I think I've gotten a bunch from Sakura in St. Paul and Origami in Mpls.

Winter time seafood restaurant?

Sea Change is doing a deal on 3 courses for $30 EVERY NIGHT in January. Go! And tell us about it.

Bar for solid cocktails

I ended up at the Inn and was very happy with my Hendricks martini! Thank you!

Bar for solid cocktails

Hello Hounds,

I'm looking for a good grown-up bar that makes great solid cocktails.

I like the Bradstreet a lot for their inventive stuff, but today, I'd like to forgo home-made bitters and 6 different kinds of ice. I'd just like a clean martini or a well-made Manhattan.


Where to watch the U.S. Open Men's Final?

The rain delay in New York means I have to leave work early to catch Nadal vs. Djokovic. And I need the expert help of you Hounds.

Do you have any suggestions for bars in the Twin Cities that might be showing the tennis match?

I work in St. Paul and live in Minneapolis. I'm thinking of catching the game either in Downtown St. Paul, Downtown Minneapolis or Uptown Minneapolis.

Thank you for your help!

Question for BAR lovers

I work in St. Paul and live in Minneapolis. I can get the best of both worlds!

I've only been to WA Frost for a sit-down dinner. I should try their cocktail option, too. Thanks for the suggestion!

Question for BAR lovers

I'm ready to cocktail on this steamy Friday with a good friend. And I'm looking for a moderate sound-leveled, non-fraternity house sort of a bar with solid drink selections.

My favorites include Bradstreet, Speakeasy and Vincent for DT Minneapolis and Lucia's and Rinata for Uptown.

Stuffed Squash Blossoms - LES/East Village?

inoteca might have it. I've had it as a special before. I'd call to see if they have it before heading out there and waiting in line for 40 min.

Where to watch the World Cup?

Thank you for the suggestions, everyone!

Due to lack of transportation time, I went to Old Chicago in Uptown the other day for an afternoon game (Brazil - N. Korea). The TVs were great, but not too many people were around to watch the game :-(

I think I'll try Nomad and Pancho Villa!

Where to watch the World Cup?

I think watching some soccer games with a crowd with some beer, wine and nibbles sounds like a wonderful rainy weekend plan. But I'm not accustomed to the sports bar scene in MSP. Any suggestions?
